We got an update on Wilderness.Â This is where Daddy took off from.
Mrs. Sigman sent us a note telling us what the plans were for Daddy today. They are going to go through Big Trout Lake through Longer Lake till they get to their camp site on Whistle Bay. This has a lot of canoing and a few short portages.
Or they may decide to go through Lake La Muir and the “Trail of Tears.”Â Momma does not remember if she did that one, but remembers one year with a LOT of hiking.Â This trail has 4,425 meters of portages and three big lakes, Big Trout, La Muir and Burntroot.
Since a mile equals 1,609.344 meters, this means about 2.75 miles of walking with a canoe on your head and a backpack on your back.Â Daddy said the canoe was about 35 pounds and his backpack was about 30 or 40, we forgot which.
Momma said we can look on our map to see where these are.
I hope Daddy has fun and does the one with a few short portages.Â I still want to go when I get a little heavier and older.
